Important Things To Remember About Sleepover Snacks

When choosing the best foods for sleepovers and pajama party food ideas and best sleepover foods:

  • Make sure that you understand any allergies and avoid those foods.
  • Instead of sodas or sugar-filled juice, provide different flavored waters (flavor with fruits and vegetables) and help get kids to hydrate in a healthy way. (Use regular, flat water and seltzer water for some bubbles!)
  • Kids react differently to sugar, so balance out your sleepover desserts and sweets for sleepovers with lots of healthy sleepover snacks to avoid the late-night sugar crash and meltdowns. (You can add your best candy for sleepovers, just don’t make those the only things to eat at a sleepover that you offer for snacking!)
  • Don’t micromanage! The best sleepover snacks are for grazing, so leave the snacks out and let everyone enjoy them throughout the party without worrying about cleaning the snack table up too soon!
  • REMEMBER: Snacks for slumber party can be simple. You don’t have to go overboard with Pinterest perfect food!
